Comforting Chicken Vegetable Dinner



Ingredients:



  • 4 chicken breasts

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 onion, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced

  • 2 celery stalks, diced

  • 1 bell pepper, diced

  • 1 zucchini, diced

  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced

  • 2 cups chicken broth

  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste

  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary

  • Salt and pepper, to taste

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream

  • Chopped fresh parsley, for garnish



Instructions:



  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper, then add them to the skillet. Cook the chicken until browned on both sides and cooked through, about 6-8 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside.

  2. In the same skillet, add the diced onion and cook until it becomes translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute.

  3. Add the diced carrots, celery, bell pepper, zucchini, and mushrooms to the skillet. Cook the vegetables until they start to soften, about 5 minutes.

  4. Stir in the tomato paste, dried thyme, dried rosemary, salt, and pepper. Cook for an additional minute to enhance the flavors.

  5. Pour in the chicken broth and bring the mixture to a simmer. Place the cooked chicken breasts back into the skillet, cover, and let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and the flavors have melded together.

  6. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour until it forms a paste (roux). Cook the roux for a minute, then slowly whisk in the heavy cream. Continue whisking until the sauce thickens.

  7. Pour the creamy sauce into the skillet with the chicken and vegetables. Stir everything together to combine. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to let the flavors meld and the sauce thicken slightly.

  8. Serve the comforting chicken vegetable dinner hot, garnished with freshly chopped parsley.
